Review Article Folk To Functional: An Explorative Overview Of Rice-based Fermented Foods And Beverages In India

1. Introduction On the Indian subcontinent, fermented foods and beverages are an integral part of cultural heritage, even today. These have been developed throughout the history of human civilization for sustained nutrition and food preservation [1,2]. Fermentation leads to changes in appearance of food characterized by quite different properties and uses. Ancient people adopted different preservation methods to store excess foods of plant and animal origin, particularly those which are seasonal and have a short lifespan (perishable).
